Sebelius Testifies Before Congress on Obamacare Website

Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius testified Wednesday before the House Energy and Commerce Committee on the disastrous rollout of the Obamacare website.

This was her first appearance before Congress since the website went live on Oct. 1.

As a result of the site's many errors and glitches, several U.S. lawmakers have called on the Secretary to resign.

"Taxpayers have spent $400 million to create exchanges that, after 3 1/2 years, still don't work," said Sen. Lamar Alexander, one of several lawmakers who think Sebelius needs to go. "No private-sector chief executive officer would escape accountability after such a poor performance."

Sebelius faced several questions about health insurance cancellation notices thousands of Americans have received since the rollout of Healthcare.gov.

"So what happened to the 'If you like your insurance, you can keep it' question?" asked Rep. Dave Camp (R-Mich.), chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, referring to President Obama's oft-repeated promise.
